Hi Roark,

You might be interested in the following tutorial:  "How to Manage  
Tabbed Buttons" available from Tutorials Picker:
How to manage tabbed buttons with 2 methods: Multiple cards method  
(each tab is a card) and Groups method (show/hide groups based on tab  
selection).  And, by script, how to set the tabs names, how to select  
a tab, how to disable or enable a tab, etc.
Tutorials Picker is available from my website http:// (Revolution > Plugins) or Rev Online (user:  
So Smart Software).

Best Regards from Paris,
Eric Chatonet.
